Modern cars are predominantly run by electrical systems and controls. Thus, a loss of power throughout the vehicle can mean losing access to essential systems that allow the driver to maintain control over their vehicle. Anti-lock braking systems, power brakes, power steering, and a variety of other systems that you rely upon for your safety are all vulnerable to failure in a loss of electrical power, making your car’s battery and cabling some of the most essential parts in the vehicle.

Car batteries utilize the chemical reactions between the metal and acid within the battery casing to produce a charge which powers the various electrical systems of the vehicle. This process can be disrupted in a number of ways and result in a number of battery malfunctions, such as:
- Acid sulfation
- Insufficient electrolyte content
- Large amounts of corrosion on the terminals
- Defects affect charge separation in battery plates
- Defective or malfunctioning terminals
Sudden loss of power to a vehicle’s electrical systems can put the driver and passengers in extreme peril, making them susceptible to being seriously injured.
